Field

Field is a lenticular-based artwork consisting of five interconnected panels installed horizontally. Each of those consists of three interlaced images: 1) native grasses, 2) wild flower, 3) microscopic image of that flower. The lenticular imagery on all five panels has been synchronized to simultaneously expose a viewer to three groupings of images when positioned at a certain distance and angle to the work. 

 

In the course of physically walking by the artwork viewers are confronted with a mixta of transitioning ‘can’t see the forest for the trees’ snippets of lenticular imagery not that unlike our fragmented yet intertwining relationship with the environment. When standing at three distinct physical positions in relation to the panels, viewers are provided with, for lack of better words ’stop and smell the roses’ experiential moments of visual clarity as five inter-related images appear together. These moments serve as platforms from which one can contemplate upon the extraordinary nature of ordinary life that presents itself humbly, be that in the form of weeds such as dandelions and/or a roadside field of unruly native grasses.

 

All original scanning electronic microscopic images (SEM's) were created by Erwin Huebner, visual artist and professor Emeritus in Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba (erwinhuebner.com). Thereafter they were colourized to fit within the lenticular transitioning context of the project.
